The National Commission on Higher Education Attainment released its findings in April of 2012, addressing how faculty engagement with students can enhance retention and determination. It also highlighted the importance of faculty and student engagement and expressed an increased need for professional development opportunities that facilitate instructional proficiency using technology (Rhodes 2012).
Adding technology to an existing curriculum can have incredible benefits for both teachers and students. When used properly, online resources can increase student engagement, develop critical thinking skills, and help students collaborate more with their peers.
What is a rubric?
A rubric is a coherent set of criteria for students' work that includes descriptions of performance quality on the criteria. This idea may sound simple, but unfortunately, the definition of rubric is rarely demonstrated in practice.
